4.   We raise up the ministry of the Gospel – especially: … our November “Mission of the Month” – the Voice of the Martyrs – as they support persecuted Christians around the world (your gifts now total $190);  … the business before today’s Semi-Annual Voters Assembly, and the ministry that will result from it;  … this week’s 7th Street Feast, that people be fed both physically, spiritually and relationally;  … all our congregational ministries: the School, Kid’s Connection, Paul’s Buffet, Dinner Church, our KKLO Broadcast, the Community Garden (and more) – that the Lord would use them (and us) to bring people to know His saving grace.

* Romans 1:16 – “The gospel … is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”
